I was interested in getting a side load from Uberti last year and was told they were doing a run of a few guns, may be this is as far as it got.

Just a point of correction.  Pedersoli may manufacture Uberti Trapdoors, but I do not believe that Pedersoli is owned by Beretta.

...The original 19th Century originals were WAY over sprung.  Since those were the
sample examples copied, the Reproductions are also WAY over sprung....

Actually, this is not true.  Originals were shipped with the spring screws NOT tightened all the way, to allow for adjustment.  This is plainly stated in the original Winchester catalog.  Uberti tightens the screw springs all the way which DOES result in the rifle being oversprung. 

A lot of people have used this technique for the "poor man's action job":

The appropriate Directions from Winchester are noted at the bottom of the article.  Obviously you must do these adjustments within reason.  Loosening screws too much will result in the carrier hanging up or the main spring not popping primers, same as if these springs had too much material removed during an action job.  I have shot BP in .45, .357, and .44 Spcl straight wall cases with no action problems (and no slam down mod, either).  The carrier may require a spritz during the match.

...There were two drawbacks to the .44 Henry rimfire ammunition. Because of the soft copper case, it was impossible to load it to the power desired. Then, once the cartridge was fired, it could not be reloaded, So, the company decided the next Winchester was to use a reloadable brass center fire cartridge with more power." [/i]  Enter the '73 Winchester...

Yes, metallic ctg. mfg. was in its infancy and remember that metallurgy was only a half rung above alchemy at that time. They knew nothing of heat treatment apart from case hardening.

Little known today, Winchester had already made a steel framed rifle at least five years BEFORE the Model '73:

Ditto RCJ!

I'll pass on to Mary for your wish for her to shoot. 

She shoots at the range, but not in competion yet.  I have a pair of Rugers and a Rossi '92 all in 357 that she shoots.  I've made a holster rig for her, and expect she will shoot SASS some later this year (once it cools off).   She isn't a fan of the shotgun, so GAF has that going in favor for her.

Ballistic products offers nitro cards, cushion wads and overshot cards in 9, 10, 11, and 12 Ga sizes.  I use the 9 ga wads in 10 ga brass shells and they are a tight fit.  I think you would be better off to use 11 Ga wads in 12 ga brass shells.

I use 11 gauge fiber wads as well but there are no 11 gauge plastic wads that I know of.

Believe me it is a thin clear plastic film. I have had several come through here and that is what it is.  Here is a picture of one I have in stock that I have pealed the clear film partially off.

We still refuse to believe it (ducks, runs out door)

Troy & Mary - nice to meet you both.

Looking forward to shooting with you again. Perhaps next time Mary will join in the mayhem.
